Publisher's Summary

Spirited away from Winstermill by the aristocratic monsterslayer, Europe, Rossamünd is still struggling with the truth of his origins. But self-doubt will have to wait as he plunges headlong into the fulgar’s day-to-day life of political manoeuvring, high society, and well-paid monster-hunting. Exposed to the seamier side of Brandenbrass society, Rossamünd finds himself facing the gravest dangers in his young life, and these will test his mettle and that of the Branden Rose in the ultimate battle against their enemies, the black-hearted schemers who would destroy them both.

A fantastic finale!

As a 57 year old male, I might not be "qualified" to enjoy the Lamplighter trilogy (it being a Young Adult read), but I have enjoyed every minute of it. I became very attached to Rossamünd and the other characters in the story. The narration of Humphrey Bower is always amazing, but in this case the excellence was due as much to the writing as the narration. If you are a person who is willing to let his or her imagination roam free, I challenge you to listen to the this trilogy (begin with the first book, of course). You will not be disappointed.

While some trilogies end with a whimper, rather than a bang, the ending of the final book (Factotum) was unpredictable and satisfying.

Satisfactory conclusion to Rossamund's adventure

Monster appreciation to Mr Cornish for his magnificent creation. The most original world since the Discworld swam into view. I luxuriated in the amazing language that Mr Cornish had created, and Mr Bower does a mighty job of narration. It is only a pity that the Explicarium was not also included.I am about to go back and re-listen to all the parts of the triolibris.

Still wading through it...

What disappointed you about Factotum?

Just dragged on a bit at the end

What was most disappointing about D.M. Cornish’s story?

Was a bit long winded

Any additional comments?

The first 2 books in the series kept my imagination but I'm struggling with the ending….almost have to persuade myself to finish it.
